A true Windows Phone 8 contender has emerged for Verizon customers – the Nokia Lumia 928. It’s a top-of-the-line Windows Phone 8 handset with a glossy black face and a white back. The flanks of the Lumia 928 are flat and make gripping the phone easier to make up for the slippery texture. The shape of the device is simple and fairly large in size.
The Lumia 928 microUSB charging port is on top instead of the bottom. Nokia also put the speaker on the back of the device rather than at the bottom, like the Lumia 920. Instead of having dual speakers with loud volume and solid sound, there’s one speaker grill that raises the decibel. Audio quality is about average.
A 4.5-inch OLED display gives the Lumia 928 a pretty face. The WXGA resolution (1280×768) is clear and supports more than 16 million colors well enough so that someone can pick up on the very subtle differences between the included Red and Verizon Red color themes. Outdoor visibility is above average thanks to Nokia’s display system, and the quality leaves little to complain about. The curved Gorilla Glass will help keep the display from cracking.
Performance and Key Specs
Windows Phone 8 has an fantastic record of delivering smooth transitions and performing with little, typically zero, lag. The 1.5 GHz dual-core processor sees to it that the Lumia 928 continues that trend. The Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and 2GB of RAM make the Lumia 928 very fast and fluid.
